The Maday Island in the southwest of Myanmar is faced with the difficulties of poor natural conditions and deficient social support resources, so the requirements on the commissioning and operation of Maday Island crude oil tank farm in the Sino-Myanmar Pipeline are quite strict. In this paper, the key problems involved in the commissioning preparation and process of crude oil tank farm were summarized, including emergency material preparation, equipment check in the tank farm and safe commissioning plan. Then, the shortages of equipment selection, material selection and construction process during the operation of crude oil tank farm were analyzed. And finally, the optimization measures were put forward correspondingly. The practical experience provides the best reference and instruction for the design, construction and operation of subsequent projects of the same type.
